Terminology by far.

It is are near fully xterm compatible and do everything you might ever need or want to and more! and all that for a very small overhead seeing as It is hardly heavier/slower than urxvt (the fastest and one of the lightest terminals out there).

Still prefer urxvt, but will use the default terminal when running any full-blown DE.

I really don't see a difference in any of the terminal emulators I've used. Granted, I've only used maybe 3 of all of the ones that are on this list.

Terminator's features are nice, but I went with Terminal (xfce).

I used LXDE and with it lxterminal. Also xterm is best if you use just twm or dwm.

If you use dwm you might also be rather interested on st as a terminal.

Always xterm. Even now. Is it as old as X11 windows? Maybe older

Terminology!
It has come a long way from simple beginnings, and now delivers a reliable experience with some outstanding features.
I now prefer it to my old favourites, which has taken a while....

Rock On! Aren't you glad I got it added >;-D I don't use it myself, but surely, Terminology takes the cake when it comes to delivering something new and improved, rather than rehased xterm, rxvt, or vte.

Speaking of vte... I use Roxterm. Why? Because it's simple to tune to my Solarize theme. Yeah, I know Terminolgy has "Solarized" theme, but damn that bright cursor, and it's tough to mod the themes!

Quite a few new ones on the list that I'm not familiar with though, so going to have to at least take a peek before I vote, cuz I gots to make sure I pass on those that are not worthy! http://www.arrogantbastard.com/liquid.asp

I know it is, we had a discussion about that with the current maintainer about how it would/could be easier for the users to theme terminology. It might take long being rather underpowered and all but stability is a priority and don't be fooled! everyone's wishes are heard and taken in high consideration.

Well, time ran out before I could test drive Sakura. Anybody using it can weigh in with their assessment?

Like I said above, I use Roxterm. Got to give the vote to Terminology though.
